Chennai Braves will lock horns with New York Strikers in the 5th match of the Abu Dhabi 10 League. This will be the first game of the tournament for The Chennai Braves. Zimbabwean all-rounder Sikandar Raza is set to lead the side and the likes of Ben Duckett, Dawid Malan, Ross Whiteley and Carlos Brathwaite will also be on the side fighting it out for the Braves this season. They have put a solid squad for this edition of the Abu Dhabi T10 League and will be looking to go all the way.
On the other hand, New York Strikers didn’t have a good start to the season as they lost their opening fixture to Bangla Tigers. Bowling first, the strikes were poor and gave away too many runs, only Wahab Riaz and Ravi Rampaul picked up two wickets each as the Bangla Tigers notched up 131 in their 20 overs. In reply, Kieron Pollard (45*) and Azam Khan (34) managed to get to double digits as they fell short of the target by 19 runs. They will be hoping to put an improved performance in this fixture against the Braves and will be hoping some of the senior players stand up for them.
All the matches will be played in Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium, Abu Dhabi and will be broadcasted live on Colors Cineplex, and Rishtey Cineplex with live streaming available on JioCinema and Voot.
